Green Birding

A visit to Old Moor RSPB Reserve in Yorkshire yielded sightings of some ‘green’ birds if only in name…….

Above – a Greenshank – below – a Green Sandpiper

And finally an emerald green Kingfisher. Not the best picture but it fits the ‘green’ theme.

On the numerous feeders near the visitor centre I had good views of chaffinches, goldfinches and bullfinches (no green-finches!), a wren, a reed bunting, a robin and a mouse! In the shallows a snipe, 6 dunlin and a couple of little ringed plovers made up a good bag for the day
